Hi,I have been premenopausal for the past year(53 almost 54). My skin, eyes,vaginal areas have become very dry and sex is painful.  Had a tiny tear or a little blood on to after sex due to not enough lube? Or not as elastic? Thinning skin down there? Ugh!!! Using reports external moisturizer...and there lube but I am still trying to figure this out. Doctor says this is normal and those plenty of moisturizer down below. Let me know if you have any answers..please. I miss having sex but scared I will tear more
